Connie Lansberg Debuts Gorgeous New Single “Free”

Written by Aiden Faire

“Connie Lansberg, the Melbourne-based jazz singer, songwriter, and the creative mind behind Transformational Entertainment, is no ordinary jazz vocalist. Her latest single, “Free,” is a remarkable blend of elegance and strength, akin to sipping tea with one hand while engaging your soul with the other.

This gentle ballad has been in the making for a decade. Lansberg cherished it like a hidden treasure, patiently awaiting the perfect moment. The stars aligned when she collaborated with jazz pianist Mark Fitzgibbon, resulting in a delicate dynamism that’s both comforting and captivating.

“Free” is a standout track from Lansberg’s self-produced album, “Alone with Bees.” Recorded in a single take with Fitzgibbon on piano, Ben Hanlon on double bass, and Peter Hodges on drums, the song showcases Lansberg’s exceptional songwriting and producing skills. It’s as if she wields her voice like a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through the noise and delving into the heart of the matter. Could this be the future of jazz? If it is, count me in!

Lansberg’s vocals exude a gentle yet compelling force. Her unique blend of grace and fierceness draws you in, prompting reflection. Backed by Fitzgibbon’s delicate piano, the song delves into the intricacies of happiness, freedom, and the burdens of the past. It’s a musical journey that’s simultaneously introspective and liberating.

Reflecting on the recording process, Connie shares, “Being in the studio with my three favorite musicians was a pure joy. Their deep respect for the delicacy of this song left me utterly astonished.”

Connie Lansberg’s “Free” is a masterclass in what I’d describe as ‘delicate dynamism.’ This track, perched at the intersection of jazz, classical, and country, encourages listeners to confront their own past traumas with its evocative storytelling and unique sound. It’s a must-listen.”

I fell in love with music when I first picked up a guitar at age 8. When I played, my friends and family would smile and spill with joy over the music I played, even though it was never Grammy quality. While my music career never made it past high school, my love for music never waivered. I loved the feeling of bringing a smile to someone's face through music and wanted to keep that passion going. So, I took it upon myself to continue to support and promote artists by writing about their music. This way, I can support my personal passion for music and bring entertain and joy to others through music.  Outside my love for music, I do enjoy a good hike and being in the outdoors. My favorite place that I've hiked is in Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah. I love to travel too. I've been to Costa Rica, Vancouver, BC, and England, but the best place by far is Germany on Oktoberfest. I liken that experience to being in New Orleans on Mardi Gras. I like a good book now and then, but I'm more of a streaming fiend. I live for crime docuseries on Netflix, veterinary shows on National Geographic, and re-watching Scrubs on Hulu.
